The holidays are coming in at full force now and Little Things is getting so many things ready for YOU. Including being a part of Little Boxes put on by the creative minds over at Besty and Iya and Keel Creative.
Little Boxes last year was so much fun…. Buuuuut THIS year we are pairing it up with our SECOND YEAR ANNIVERSARY!!
We couldn’t be more excited to be one of over 160 local small businesses, and holy raffle prizes!! Serious amounts of prizes. An iPad, dinners from locally owned restaurants, hotel stays, gift bags from most of the businesses including an awesome one from yours truly , and what I think is a genius prize A SHOPPING SPREE ($600, $400, $200) to ANY of the businesses!! Plus, like last year, bring in a stamped map and get 10% off. Details HERE. Tell us HAPPY ANNIVERSARY and get another 5% off because we love you. Don’t have a stamp and are just starting you’re Little Boxes adventures? Tell us HAPPY ANNIVERSARY and still get 10% off any of your purchases.
Do you know what else is going on?!? WISH LISTS!! That means you have 5 lines (or the whole back side) to write down what YOU might be wanting for the holidays. We’ll keep it on file for you at the store, and you can take one home to maybe put on the fridge for someone to find.
To go along with the wish lists Cory, my dear husband, is hosting our second annual Men’s Holiday Happy Hour December 20th 4-8pm. A little last minute, but not quite. Shopping that’s laid back, helpful, involves drinking beer, and best of all wrapping of some sweet locally made gifts for you, sisters, moms, ext.
Busy busy busy!!
This month AND next month we’ll be featuring the lovely Ursula Barton. Stop by and check out her limited edition prints of the Fremont Bridge, the Hawthorne Bridge, the Steel Bridge, and some amazing Portland cityscapes!!
Ooookay… I’m back on. Lol. So much fun has been happening. Here’s some snap shots of the fun new goods we’ve gotten in lately.
April’s First Thursday event is Ocean themed and will be showcasing some of the Pacific NW’s coolest artists.
Featured Artists Include:
Jason Edwards Davis
This is the first show that I, Cory… shop husband, have curated for Little Things and am very excited to be Promoting the show for the SurfRider Foundation. I have always thought that they are one of the best non-profits around because the world has no greater wealth than that which comes from the ocean.
A good portion of the proceeds are going to the SurfRider Foundation – Portland Chapter to help them with their efforts in keeping the worlds water clean.
The show will start First Thursday April 5th, 2012 and conclude on April 30th, 2012.
There will be a silent auction held on the Fifth of April.
Special guests from SurfRider will be on hand to share the awesomeness that is their cause.
If you want to donate to the cause or have a piece of art that you would like to include in the silent auction feel free to contact us directly by March 30th. Space is limited.

Robin from Birds Of Oregon stopped in yesterday with some more of her lovely lockets. These have been flying out the door. So cute and girly, yet very sentimental and classic at the same time. Robin mentions “A locket says ‘I have someone close to my heart” .. A locket says, “my diamond is a person, not a rock”. A locket says ‘remember that time we went to the beach? well I do and I will forever”. Fashion or function or just because, these nail it all around the board. Made from all of Robins original illustrations all on vintage one of a kind lockets. Come in and check them out!!
You know what showed up to Little Things this week?!?! New Sock it To Me socks! Including Portland’s Design-a-Sock contest winners Caffeinated and Right as Rain. So fun so durable. These socks made me become a sock faaanatic. All I need to say is boots, Sock it To Me socks, tights and a sweet skirt. Winter never looked so sassy, and for $7.50 ooor 3 pairs for $20 they won’t break the bank either
I’ve been behind on my blog, and want to apologize. I’M SO SORRY that you haven’t been able to know what’s going on, what’s new, what artists are doing amazing things, and the big one I’m sorry about… There is NO PHOTO’S. Slacker RIGHT HERE. There. Now I can put my tail between my legs and write again. Get you up to date. Whew I feel better already, You?
Now let’s start… Little Things is OPEN!!
Little Things is a boutique in NW Portland right between the Pearl district and Nobb Hill. Here we specialize in locally made jewelry and accessories. We have a little bit of everything.
The store Little Things is this crazy idea I came up with while traveling, doing business classes at PSU, and where it really struck me was when I found an amazing crafty group of amaaaazing ladies. Why not, why continue to pay to learn how to make fake business dreams when I can do my own. I held my breath and jumped right in. Literally.
I rented at GARAGE at the Lovejoy ActivSpace, and transformed it to a little boutique. I wanted the space to be the opposite of what it was, and now I think it is. It’s cozy and cute.
Filling the space has been my absolute favorite thing. Finding local artist has been quite easy and every single one has inspired me. The whole idea behind the store was to show off Portland’s amazing jewelry and accessories designers. From funky to sleek, from a simple fun impulse buy to a “I must save to buy this item buuut it’s worth it”. Little Things has it all, and what’s great about it is that you are supporting not only a local business, but local artists all in one stop shop
So stop in check it out. If YOU are an jewelry and accessories artist or know of one that MUST be in the shop send me an email at email@example.com Please include your name, pictures of your work or a link to it, and a little about yourself.
Talk to you all soon…. really. <3
Things are crazy but going great. Little Things is coming along quite nicely. Only a month ago I put up my coming soon sign. I can’t believe it. It’s amazing the transition the little garage has made. Before it was a “can you imagine” type of place where only I could see the potential. Now I’ve been meeting with amazing artists and enjoying every moment!
November 11th, a Thursday, will be the GRAND OPENING. There will be hot drinks and some yummy desserts as well as some shrinky crafting action and sweet raffle giveaways!! Come down say hi and bring a friend. See you then and in the mean time enjoy life!!! Aaaand check out the Little Things facebook page and “like” us even though you love us.
